I am looking for a new career and computer forensics and security seem to be a field with a lot of promise. Can you suggest how some one may begin a new career in this arena?

    Welcome to ITKE. You should look to colleges and universities that offer courses in your field of interest. To get a feeling for how to move into the field as a career, review all prerequisites for those courses. Make sure you are solid in the prerequisites; and if you are, then begin enrolling in the specific field courses. If you do not meet the prerequisites, then those are how you start. -- Tom

    Both fields are great to be in today. Choose one or the other, though, as they require unique skills/tools. It can be a bit too much to focus on both. I've written extensively about information security careers here. This audio program may also be of interest. Also consider joining your local chapter of ISSA.

    I wish you all the best!
